The U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament began over thirty five years ago, when a small group of community leaders met and decided that they needed an event to showcase the great fall fishing in the Southport-Oak Island area. Today, the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament attracts 400 boats annually and is one of the largest kingfish tournaments on the east coast. The tournament has a guaranteed prize structure with over $100,000 in prizes.

The official 2015 tournament will be held at the Southport Marina. For information about the tournament visit the website.

Admission: Tournament registration fee, but spectators are free
